    Yeah, you have to do the source evaluation and the bibliography as part of the coursework.

    Evaluation has to be 500 words and I think you have to do about 5 sources (or at least more than 2/3) to get in the higher bands.

    Not sure what you mean by glossary, I guess that's if you didn't reference and footnote your essay, on the actual essay.
    I knew about the evaluation and bibligraphy and your right about the glossary being instead of referencing/footnoting on the actual essay, but I didn't except to have to do that as well as a Bibliography seeing as it means writing the same thing twice.

    Oh, well, you can copy and paste surely? But you have to write down every single book/source/website that you've touched in your bibliography. Not just the ones you've quoted in your essay. So you aren't being plagiaristic. Because there's a document which you have to sign asking if you've researched anything or used any sources you haven't listed.

    True. And yeah I guess I can cut & paste for the most part.

    I think it depends on your teacher or moderator thinking that it's above your standard, so typing it into a search engine or their special machine things. I'm not exactly sure, but someone in year 11 got caught out for it last year at my school. So you can never be too careful.

    Ah fair enough. Yeah, a few guys in my school got caught for English cw few years back. I was just wondering because it occured to me that the moderators get sent paper copies, and so can't put them through a database of any kind, which is what I'd thought happened haha. So the external tmoderators purpose is more to check that the marking is standardised, rather than that the essays aren't fake, right?

    probably using the same technology they use to check personal statements.

    I think they can still scan paper copies too. They just have to put it through some kind of machine first.

    I guess it depends how strict your moderator wants to be really!

    Not sure what you mean by themes. They didn't come up at all in my essay. Mine was more about continuation and change over the period, rather than similiarities of it. I guess maybe I did 4/5 themes.

    Solely political, with maybe a few social. My question was: ‘Unionists have always refused to compromise.’ With reference to the period 1886-1998, how valid is this view of the prolonged failure to find a solution to the Irish question?

    My essay was fundamentally about the actions taken by governments, the actions taken by terrorists, legislation and policing.

    I'm sorry, I'm not much help. I think my question is just too specific.

    I think it goes up to level 5. Level 5 is the highest so would be an A.

    So level 3/4 would be a C/B, I guess.

    It'll depend on the school - some people get to know, others won't. My school won't tell us History, but we've been told our mark for English.
